The main hall at the Meadowlands Exposition Center, in New Jersey, was bustling with more than 6,000 attendees taking a look at 360 food and drink exhibitors from around the world.
The hundreds of products on show included everything from pizza bases made from cauliflower, to salsas, ice cream sandwiches, cider, beef empanadas (a Mexican pastry), Italian sorbets, gins, charcuterie, tequila, and even a range of biscuits infused with cannabis oil.
But this was no ordinary food and drink exhibition. For while there was a vast range on display, everything had one major thing in common – they were all certified kosher. Everything present conformed to kashrut, the Jewish dietary laws.
